Match Report: Tottenham won the first all London Final more easily than the 2-1 score suggests. The two sides matched each other in fitness, but Tottenham's greater skill and their ability to muster more men in attack prevailed over Chelsea's admirable energy and persistence.
There were a few startling moments before the first goal came, just before half-time. Robertson's powerful left-foot volley in the fourteenth minute was turned expertly round the post by Bonetti, and a similar Robertson effort shortly afterwards just cleared the bar. For Chelsea, Cooke's fine shot at the end of a superb dodging run was punched over by Jennings.
Then, on half-time, Tottenham scored. It was a case of third time lucky for Robertson, their Scottish international right-winger, as he cracked the ball, again left-footed, low past Bonetti's right hand after Harris had got in the way of Mullery's pile-driver from outside the area.
While still never reaching their peaks, the Tottenham players remained markedly superior in the second half, and they effectively clinched the Cup with a second goal after sixty-eight minutes. Robertson helped on Mackay's long throw-in from the left, and Saul, pivoting quickly and instinctively, hooked the ball in.
The pace dropped as Tottenham casually began to roll their passes, working in neat squares and triangles. With five minutes to go Tambling headed a goal for Chelsea, but they had left it too late to save the match.
